Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance Graduate Program
Tuition for all RAQA graduate courses is as follows as of August 1, 2023 to July 31, 2024. (Tuition rates are the same, whether courses are online, on-campus, part of a certificate program or part of another master's program at the School of Pharmacy.):

All RAQA courses are 3 credits. Twelve courses (36 credits) are required for the MS in RAQA. PA residents pay approximately $42,696 in tuition for the MS degree. Non-PA residents pay approximately $53,100 for the MS degree. 

Ten courses (30 credits) are required for the MS in GCPR and  Pharmaceutical Regulatory Sciences.  So PA residents pay approximately $35,580 for the MS degree in those programs, and Non-PA residents pay approximately $44,250 for the MS degree.

The University Services Fee defrays the enormous cost of providing computer services to all Temple students, regardless of location. It covers:

  • purchasing online Zoom licenses for students;
  • providing 24-hour computer service to students through Temple's HELP line (215.204.8000);
  • providing computer access to Temple's library, including online access to many required textbooks;
  • maintaining the TUid system which eliminates the use of social security numbers thereby enhancing security against ID theft;
  • providing free Temple e-mail (TUmail) to students;
  • purchasing the latest remote technology for RAQA courses and providing free videoconferencing to corporate sites.

The University’s fee is pro-rated which means it is based on the number of credits a student takes each semester. This assures that part-time students do not carry an undue share of the cost. Other schools charge students $1,000+ each semester for similar services.

Register early to guarantee your spot in a course and also to avoid being charged a late registration fee.  In addition, if you do not pay your tuition bill by the due date, the University will impose a $100 late payment fee. 

Each semester the RAQA Office posts approximate tuition bill dates on the Official Course Schedule. You are responsible for reading this information and complying with the procedures, which includes checking your TUmail account for tuition bills. Please register in a timely manner and pay your bill by the due date to avoid any penalties.

International students may also be responsible for paying additional fees. Please contact the Office of International Student and Scholar Services for additional information.
